Rotational Anisotropy Nonlinear Harmonic Generation

Abstract

Rotational anisotropy nonlinear harmonic generation (RA-NHG) is an all-optical technique by which crystallographic, magnetic, and electronic symmetries of crystalline materials’ bulk surface and interfaces may be examined. It also allows characterization of nanostructures and biological tissue as well as imaging applications. In this chapter, we describe the principles behind RA-NHG, discuss current experimental approaches, and review key experimental findings since 2009.
